i have worked at ase and the cr7 is about the max you are going to get to make it out of ase on the commecial side. you can not take a full load out to ord as it is....if the cr9 could make it in then you would have seen the cr9 there last winter doing the slc-ase runs...also isnt expressjet going to start up some ase runs for delta?????

Quoting AirTranTUS (Reply 1): I don't know how well a 757 would work, the airport is at ~7800 feet and has a 7000 ft. runway.
Not well at all, since the 757 is outside of ASE's wingspan limits. It's either the CRJ700 or the E170. Either one would be weight restricted, since ASE is 300nm further than ORD (and I don't think the E170 has been approved for ASE yet, though it probably could be). But ASE can be a big moneymaker, so I don't see why not.

DL is certainly no strange to "longhaul" CR7 flights *cough*DFW-West Coast*cough*, though neither of those routes faced restrictions like ASE would likely occur. That said, a flight timed to connect with DL's Euro flights from ATL would certainly be worth a try.
I don't think so. The UAL flights out of here are SkyWest and Mesa, I think it doesn't make sense for them to bring another operator in...not for 3x a day. I think SkyWest actually does all the ground operations for Mesas Dash8s. I did see a truck with a mesa tug on it coming up the valley toward the airport yesterday afternoon, anyone know anything about that?
I don't think that they will try to bring in the E170. I don't know if it would be able to get in and out of ASE. But I think the ground ops might also be a problem. I think they have a good operation with the CR7's and Dash 8's.

Someone here at Eagle told me that ASE and EGE are both outside the single-engine climb requirements for the CR7. That might just be an Eagle restriction, which is more restrictive than what is published, but I don't know the tech specifics behind any of it. Just what a pilot told me!

Quoting NW747-400 (Reply 11): ASA is rumored to be fitting a portion of the CR7 fleet with F seats per a request by DL.
I don't understand why they haven't gotten any 900's. Anyone want to bring some light to that? They are Delta's maine regional carrier for Atlanta and there are tons of routes out of Atlanta that can be switched over to CRJ-900 service.

My understanding is that the CR9's that SkyWest flies right now were originally slated to go to ASA. However, when SkyWest bought ASA, it was switched so that the CR9 flying would be done by the SkyWest side of the operation.

Until very recently, ASA had been in protracted labor negotiations (spanning 4+ years) with it's pilot group. With that going on, there was little chance Skywest would give the CRJ900's to ASA. Even going forward, I wouldn't be surprised to see Skywest keep most new planes on the Skywest side, as a way to whipsaw the non-union SKYW against the union ASA.

Quoting Mir (Reply 19): Which is why they're weight restricted going out.
Only to ORD and LAX, and that's in the dead of winter due to the mass demand for the seats. While summer usually has the hardest payload hits, they are usually non-events since demand for ASE isn't near as bad then.
